As lockdown restrictions lift, we have decided to help Leeds Credit Union members by listing out all the best places in the UK you can visit over the summer holidays! With it looking unlikely that we will be able to go abroad in the next few months, why not take advantage of what we have to offer on our shores? Here are five examples:
There are plenty of beaches in Cornwall, which is one of the main reasons it’s considered one of the most popular staycation destinations.
While it is a six hour journey from Leeds, it is worth it. With so much to offer from, surfing beaches, coastal walking, sailing and horse riding - it’s perfect for those looking for those outdoor pursuits.
In terms of places to stay in Cornwall, there’s lots of choice - from cottages to apartments. You can find the best areas to stay in with this list from Holiday Cottages. They list out the best locations for foodies, surfers, families, couples and much more!
If you're looking for a more northern and nature-filled holiday destination, then the Lake District is the ideal place for you! There’s plenty to explore, with the lakes and waters, woodlands, walking trails and stunning views.
Windermere is the most central point of the Lake District and it’s also one of the most popular places for visitors and tourists. This list from Visit Cumbria offers a wealth of things to do for couples, families and travellers at Windermere.
This charming destination is great for families and this location can be enjoyed all year round, as it’s full of attractions that everyone can enjoy, not just in the summer! The Cotswolds is full of wonderful stone cottages, gardens and outdoor activities, all situated in this magnificent location.
One of the top places to visit is the Blenheim Palace, with many enjoying the light trail that they host and enjoy grounds of this wonderful country house. Find out more about the Cotswolds and all it has to offer here.
Somewhere that is a bit closer to home! Similar to the Lake District - it’s ideal for those who enjoy the great outdoors! With an impressive amount of castles, waterfalls, walking trails and lots of places to stay and visit - it’s a great destination to spend the summer!
You can find a full list of things to see and do around Yorkshire from their official website. From mountain biking, the caves, to abbeys and scaling stunning cliffs.
The Scottish Highlands is the perfect stunning location for those looking for somewhere that is quiet, green and beautiful.
Legendary battlefields, museums packed with fascinating local history and breathtaking geological wonders, there should be plenty to enjoy if you go to Scotland! The Highlands are also home to Loch Ness so while you’re there, plan a trip to visit the beautiful loch and hope that you catch a glimpse of the world-famous Nessie while you’re there.
